Ianto Jones! On a spaceship! Fall to Earth is the second release in the first batch of the Big Finish Torchwood audios. The basic premise of the story – Ianto is stuck on SkyPuncher, the first private spaceflight, and he is the last surviving passenger trying to navigate the spaceship back to safety. And his only point of contact with Earth is via Zeynep an insurance call center agent.
I loved this as a solo Ianto story it is packed with adventure and humour. Gareth David-Lloyd does an excellent job of conveying Ianto’s personality in the audio medium. He’s slightly awkward, funny and full of curiosity and creative solutions. The flirting between Ianto and Zeynep seemed more in line with Jack’s personality than Ianto’s but seemed to fit if you looked at it as Ianto trying to lighten the life threatening situation.
The plot and setup of the story revolving around a phone call is surprisingly simple but it the story still manages to have some twists and turns that make it edge of the seat listening experience.
If you like Torchwood, particularly the second season, or are a Ianto fan you will really enjoy this story. Well worth a listen.
